Ubuntu :: Command Line - Find And Replace Text Within Multiple Files?

Aug 28, 2010

I'm pretty sure this is doable from the command line, but my CLI skills have degraded a lot since my pre-Y2K admin days. The goal is to search all the files in the directory for a very long string of text and replace it with another string of text. The text being searched for is my Google Adsense code (which will be stripped from my website) and it will be replaced with a placeholder so I can easily tack something else in there in the future.

Seeing how I have that long snip of code on about 100 pages, automating the process would make life easier.
If I was searching for a single word, I can see ways to do this.
If I paste the code I'm searching for into a text file, is there a way to:
find (contents of oldstring.txt) and replace with (contents of newstring.txt)?

General :: Multiple Lines At The Command Line?

Feb 22, 2011

I've seen a few tutorials that have commands and parameters on multiple line, like the one below:

Code:
chkconfig --levels 235 mysqld on
/etc/init.d/mysqld start

I can copy and paste this in Putty, but what if I want to manually type it? If I press return, the first line gets processed, so how do I insert a new line?

General :: Grep Command - Show The Files But Not The Line Count

Oct 31, 2010

This has to also show the line count. I can get it to show the files but not the line count. What is the single command used to identify only the matching count of all lines within files under the /etc directory that contain the word ‚ÄěHOST? List only the files with matches and suppress any error messages.

General :: SQL Like Group By And Sum For Text Files In Command Line?

May 2, 2010

I have huge text files with two fields, the first is a string the second is an integer. The files are sorted by the first field. What I'd like to get in the output is one line per unique string and the sum of the numbers for the identical strings. Some strings appear only once while other appear multiple times. Given the sample data below, for the string glehnia I'd like to get 10+22=32 in the result. how to do this either with gnuwin32 command line tools or in linux shell?

General :: Splitting Text File Into Several Parts By Line Count

Sep 21, 2009

I have a utility that works with files. The utility is crashing at after about 120 files. The input to the utility is a file containing a filelist. I want to cut the file with the file names in it to seperate files containing about one hundred or so. My thought was to determine the number of lines/100 and then use head and delete to create temporary files to run the utility multiple times to prevent the crash. When I tried to create a variable using the wc -l command the output gives me the number of total lines but it also includes the filename of the input file. (873 Filename.txt) I can not figure out how to remove the Filename.txt from the variable.

Ubuntu :: Move Multiple Files Via Command Line?

Sep 15, 2010

I liked the idea of the "cosmos" screensaver/desktop, but wanted to add my own pictures to the application. I navigated to /usr/share/backgrounds/cosmos and tried to drag and drop. I quickly found that I did not have permission to do this.

I googled my problem and found some command line tutorials telling me to sudo cp. My problem is that I have about 30 pics that I want to move in there, and I don't think I can just move the directory, they have to be in that folder as the pictures themselves.

I don't really feel like typing the cp line multiple times with multiple randomly named image files.

Is there a way to have the command line cp all of my files from one directory to another?

Software :: Join 2 Text Files Based On First Number Present In Every Line Of The 2 Text Files?

Jan 22, 2010

I have 2 text files : file1.txt and file2.txt

cat file1.txt

15 this is a sentence containing various words and spaces
34 this is a another sentence containing various words and spaces

cat file2.txt

2 this is sentence1file2
6 this is sentence2file2
54 this is sentence3file2

I would like to join these 2 files. The result should look as follows :

cat joinedfile.txt

2 this is sentence1file2
6 this is sentence2file2
15 this is a sentence containing various words and spaces
34 this is a another sentence containing various words and spaces
54 this is sentence3file2

==> so the joined file must be sorted on the first number. Any ideas how this can be achieved ?

Ubuntu :: Paste Multiple Lines Of Text Into Terminal / Nano?

Jan 24, 2010

I'm using GNOME terminal to SSH into a Debian server and would really like a way to paste multiple lines of text into configuration files (using the nano text editor if possible).

So far whatever I try dumps all the text onto a single line meaning I have to manually go through inserting line feeds which is tedious and can introduce errors.

Is there a way to paste text with line feeds intact? Rather than copying each line individually?
